Posted on 01/19/2009 8:13:54 PM PST by Jet Jaguar
Vice President Cheney will be in a wheelchair for tomorrow's inauguration ceremony, the White House said tonight, after he pulled a muscle in his back.
Cheney was moving into his new house in McLean from the Naval Observatory when he hurt his back moving boxes, White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said.
The vice president's doctor found no significant damage from the injury, Perino said. Nevertheless, he advised Cheney to spend the next couple of days in a wheelchair.

Take care of you back Mr. Vice President.
It has been an honor to serve under you.
You will be missed.
Won’t it be harder to impose martial law from a wheelchair?
You = your
Dear VP Cheney...I love you for being a man and trying to help, but you can’t fly fish from a wheelchair! You’ve got some fishin’ to do, Sir...now get well, and get out there!!! ;-)
Prayers for healing, Vice President Cheney!
He’s got 13 hours left. We’ll see.
Not really, and it does work better for the hand-clasping chuckling scene.
I am still disappointed his Army didn’t come and stop Obama afterall. Stupid liberals giving me hope like that.
Dick - be sure to file that injury report to ensure the worker’s comp claim goes through!
Maybe it’s a secret high tech wheelchair with lasers and stuff.
Why was he moving boxes? It's not like he's poor and can't afford to hire somebody to do it, especially with his heart condition.
He was moving boxes himself because he’s not a wussy Liberal.
He’s a great man. I expect he was carrying boxes alongside the movers.
I love Dick Cheney. I pray he recovers quickly.
All that tension in your back should be gone soon. You’ve handled the load of the whole world on your shoulders for what must seem like an eternity and, we thank you for your sacrifices.
It’s time now, for a four yearlong Obamaspasm.
Get well soon.
Watch CNN play this to the hilt. They will probably even get a cameraman down on the carpet to film upward to emphisize the spokes on that wheelchair, like they use to do to George Wallace and would never have done to Franklin Roosevelt.
And, one more prediction for tomorrow.
When President Bush comes down those velveted steps and he is announced, there will be loud, quite audible booing and hissing from the crowd at the Capitol. Maybe not in the VIP section, but in the other parts, and CNN will dutifully pick it up with mikes and play it to the hilt, rounding off his eight years. It is a prediction.
Cheney loves a parade!
Get well soon, Mr. Vice President. I’m going to miss you.
Nice psych ops Cheney, I’d be damned if I would stand for POTUS MUZZIE HUSSEIN either.
This is an act of genius — just as the Obamanation is busy trying to steal Lincoln from the Republican Party, VP Cheney turns the tables by stealing FDR from the Democrat Party!!!
[just kidding, wishing you well Mr. Vice-President Cheney, I like saying that title for you for 12 more hours or however long we have before the gaseous bimbo Joe Biden takes the title for I hope only 4 years or less...... maybe Biden will do a Spiro Agnew and have to resign over something]
AMEN..AND AMEN.....and what a MAN!
I THINK he might have injured himself hoistin bin ladin’s carcass out the back door of his walk in freezer up in Dakota, North where it’s been a guest for lo these many years...
God, I never even thought about that. Millions in Washington DC, boooing the President that protected them for 8 years.
You know what is worse...I sincerely hope they have provided President Bush with enough protection. With all the 0bama focus...and some real leftist crazies running around DC, I pray President Bush hasn’t neglected his own security.
OMG, that was my first thought. Why in the H was he moving boxes?
Biden: “Stand up, Dick, stand up, ohhhh God Bless ya’, what am I sayin’”
May God be with you always.
Right about the time he is announced and comes down the carpet. I know that crowd, seeing them live on CNN right now as I type. Not that I am a fan of Bush, but even booing him in my book would be very low brow.
Ya know, a lot of kook theories crashed and burned this day along those lines.
Not that the kooks will ever acknowledge it.
“Biden: Stand up, Dick, stand up, ohhhh God Bless ya, what am I sayin
Lol, I could see that happening!
I will miss VP Cheney.
Bye bye troll.
Let me know how that useful idiot thing works for you.
Dr. Strangelove had no problem... Except for that damned arm.
